Gravelly News by Glenna Goodson

Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it that said: "Free--you want it, you take it."Forthree days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it.He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal. It looked too good to be true, so he changed the sign to read:"Fridge for sale,$50." The next day someone stole it!!

2. While looking at a house, the man asked the real estate agent which way was north, because, he explained, he did not want the sun waking him up every morning.She asked,":does the sun rise in the North?"When the guy explained that the sun rises in the East(and has for some time) she shook her head and said,:"Oh, I don't keep up with that stuff!"

I was very surprised--and happy too, to learn that
Misti Hines has had another baby. She and her family moved to Odessa, Texas, a few months ago from the Gravelly area. Misti worked for Gary Garner and her husband had chicken houses. Now KaRisa has a baby brother. I tutored KaRisa for several months and really learned to love her and her family, so congratulations on the arrival of a baby boy.

Frances, formerly Fowler, told me at the Fowler's restaurant at Plainview, about the healing power of vinegar. She told me to go to a health store and get Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar and take a teaspoon a day to help my arthritic knees. She told me at would take about a month to tell any difference, so I am waiting for the vinegar miracle to work!!

Last Tuesday, I worked in the food pantry at our Rover Baptist Church. Vivian Noon and I worked together and she told me that the week before they gave food to 10 families. But Tuesday, we had only 2 families that came for food. One lady had 5 in her family so we at least helped 6 people. Vivian brought her 16 month old great-grandson with her. His name is Reed Crawford and I have never seen a better behaved child. He just played with his toys and walked around the room with a smile on his face. He never cried or got fussy. Since I have known Sonny Lofland, Reed's grandpa, all Sonny's life, I asked Vivian what Sonny thought of his grandson. She said Sonny takes Reed tractor riding on his farm and that Reed really has fun with his "Pa". Frances, Reed's grandmother, keeps Reed while his mother works. Frances is truly blessed to have such a wonderful grandchild.

Dennus, June Castleberry, Loucindaand I went on an excursion last Thursday afternoon. Dennus drove June'scar and it gave Loucinda a chance to "sight-see" instead of drive, as she usually does.We journeyed to Russellville, ate at La Huerta, and then went to Penney's.We drove through Oppula,Atkins Morrilton. We stopped in Morrilton at Fred's. On the way back home, Dennus drove over the Petit Jean mountain. That wassuch a beautiful and interesting drive. June was putting her glasses on and said"I only wear my glasses when Dennus is driving", but Dennus was a gooddriver and we appreciated him driving us around. Not many guys would do that and still be in a good mood when they get home.

Speaking of Dennus--he has a cat that is just like part of the family. Whether he is riding the 4-wheeler with Dennus or sleeping in Dennus' lap in the recliner, that is one spoiled cat. Well, Dennus' cat comes up with a girlfriend and this female cat comes to Dennus' garage. Dennus said if she had not been pretty he would have run her off, but she's pretty so she can stay.Dennus gotthe female cat a special bowl and feeds her when he feeds his cat. June tells Loucinda,"I'm just going to have to grow fur and learn to meow, to get Dennus' attention."

I was in Fowler's restaurant at Plainview and a lady asked me if Iwrote the Gravelly news. When I said "Yes" she saidshe always cuts out my jokes and send them to her 95 year old grandmother who lives in Cooldale. That is neat!!!

I enjoyed the Fireman's supper at Gravelly last Saturday night. I had not seen Beatrice Garner Yates in quite awhile, so it was goodto visit with her and Gerri Ferguson, her daughter. There were 21 that attneded. Jim Roberson called a board meeting to elect officers. The ones already on the board were re-elected and Ray Ledbetter was elected to fill a vacancy that was created at the death of Bruce Hunnicutt.

Last Friday night I went to Little Rock to a Premier Jewelry party. My niece, Machel, hosted the party in her home. My pastor's wife in OKC sold Premier so I knew I really liked the jewelry.It was so good to see MaChel and her family. Emily, at 13, is a beautiful young lady. Christopher was 5 years old on Thursday and Andrew is 2. It was a fun party.

A couple of weeks ago, I needed copies made of a map I had and I needed a copy of a map of Israel. I went to Fourche Valley School, and their Media-specialist, Lise Millard Davis, made copies of my map for me and found the other map I needed. I really appreciated Lisa's help.

Remember to SMILE because God loves you!!
